She who nurtures and protects us while we live. The Mother watches over us and keeps the demons from the minds of the righteous and holds them back in the night. This is the principle god of the common people since the protection in the present is worth more than in some nebulous afterlife.
The moon is symbolic of the Mother as she lights the gloom and protects the physical form in the dark places of the world. She is also represented by the faithful hound or domesticated wolf-dog who guards and protects with love and affection.
